Other Activities on the Beach

If you want to see little hatchlings making their way to the ocean, you should come during the turtle nesting season and visit the beach at night or very early in the morning.

If you like exercising in the open air, you can visit morning yoga classes or you can come to exercise by yourself. By the way, sunrises on Singleton Beach are fantastic!

Visitor questions:

Question: Hi. I came across your site when trying to get more information about the free beach shuttle near the house my and 2 other families have rented in August. It sounds like you call the driver each time the you are ready for pick up/drop off? Or does it run on a certain schedule? Do you know how many people can go at one time? Basically I'm just looking for more details so we can determine if we need to rent a golf cart ourselves or something along those lines. Thank you so much!
